Student Externship Locator

Search our extensive database of externships to find an interesting experience to build your veterinary medicine knowledge or meet graduation requirements.

Externships come in all shapes and sizes but what is the right one for you? Begin your search below by either browsing the full list at once or set filters with your specific requirements. Feel free to search by area of interest and/or state or school. For example, if you were interested in an externship in New York that focuses on equine, you would click the box for “Equine” under Area of Interest and click “New York” under State.

Please keep in mind that this tool includes many, but not all externships, available in the U.S. You can also look at externship opportunities posted on the AVMA Veterinary Career Center. Also, there is no guarantee that the externships you are interested in will have an opportunity available at the specific times or dates you require. The AVMA does not endorse nor recommend any of these externships conducted by these organizations.

If you know of an externship that can be included or if you have any questions or comments, please contact Amanda Fark at
